JUST ASK SHANE: Help Fix the Hole in Wall Along Steptoe Street

Posted: Updated:
KENNEWICK, WA - We have an update on the hole in the wall along Steptoe Street that we told you about on Tuesday.  Our original story generated a lot of feedback on Facebook, with several people wanting to know how they can help the homeowner, Teri Devins. Vicki was one of those folks, saying "I'm sorry, but this woman should not have to pay for this.  We in the community should try and help her out. What can we do?"

We found out that one of Teri's friends has set up a GoFundMe account to help raise some money to pay for the repairs.  Teri has gotten a couple estimates from contractors, and the lowest bid came in around $4,200, which is a couple thousand dollars more than Teri's insurance will cover.  Remember, the driver who caused the accident that sent an SUV crashing into the wall was under-insured, and doesn't have enough coverage to pay for the damage to the wall, and the SUV he hit.
